This class was very challenging after having an easy Professor for Intermediate GIS but with help from the TA & classmates, I was able to do well and I definitely walked away feeling like a GIS expert. Sheng is a very sweet professor who makes lectures decently interesting. The weekly projects are intense and take time but there's no midterm or final. Push yourself and take this class!

Good professor with some clarity issues or confusing instructions. The first weeks will feel really hard as you realize that it is actually an advanced class. However, once you get going the workload is reasonable with one assignment per week. Make sure to work in groups to ask each other questions.

Sheng is hard to understand, but he cares about the topic. My main gripe with the class was the grading structure of weekly labs. You cannot get above an 80% with out going above and beyond. While I understand this is advanced gis there is little to no instruction on lab projects. I would get remarks on labs saying 'missing two maps and charts,' but I wasn't aware those were necessary. A. Madson was my TA and he is not helpful at all.
